Extract:
the Mountain View company could be paying hundreds of millions of dollars to its Sunnyvale archrival, Yahoo, if it loses a little-noticed patent lawsuit unfolding in a San Jose courtroom.

The case pits Google against Overture Services, an Internet advertising company bought by Yahoo last year. Overture claims it patented an online bidding system for ads seven months before Google introduced a similar system.

From the above link:

``My observation is that there is this big lawsuit between two enormous players,'' ... ``and no one is paying attention to it.''

How true, even at WebmasterWorld, where the vocal Google enthusiasts gather :(
